Brett Pitman is likely to be concerned after latest Portsmouth dealings

Published

Portsmouth recently confirmed the signings of strikers, James Vaughan and Omar Bogle, which has certainly bolstered Kenny Jackett’s attacking depth ahead of the second-half of the season. 

But will these new arrivals provide too much competition for some in the Pompey squad? One man who is likely to be concerned over his place in the starting XI is Brett Pitman.

The striker has certainly played his part in Portsmouth’s impressive start to this year’s league campaign, but he could be forced out of the squad in the near future.

Pitman has already made 21 appearances this season, but having made only seven league starts in total, he’ll surely be fearing for his place in the matchday squad going forward.

At the age of 31, he definitely still has something to offer both on and off the pitch for Pompey, but I would be considering where my long-term future currently lies.

With him not even being involved in the Pompey squad in their draw with Doncaster at the weekend, there will be concerns amongst the Fratton Park faithful that he could be one that sees his game time restricted due to the recent arrivals.

Pitman has every right to be frustrated by his lack of game time this season, as he is a proven goalscorer and could certainly do a job for the majority of sides in League One this season.

But if you look at the quality that Portsmouth have in attack, it’s understandable that he could be forced out of Kenny Jackett’s plans.

The likes of Jamal Lowe, James Vaughan and Omar Bogle are better options to have up-front on a more regular basis, and I’d say they will all be ahead of Pitman very soon.

Pitman needs to resolve his future at the earliest of opportunities, and he still has the ability to fire a team up the table, and his experience would be an asset to the majority of teams.
